Here are some nice ones, but they're rather pricey.

A member here, Demondriver, has been known to do custom (and incredibly good) airliner builds for people but that'll definitely cost you something. I'm not entirely sure of how that works, or if he'd even be willing to do another one, but it might be worth asking.

Also, how much R/C flight experience do you have? Airliners aren't exactly a walk in the park to fly due to their EDF setups.

The idea with those planes is that you just don't crash them, which is why I asked about your flying experience. Fixing something like that isn't really a question of money because there's SO much more than money involved.

As for cheaper ones, there aren't too many out there. I've seen this one fly and I must say it looks very realistic in the air... Then there's this one, but it's out of stock and the shipping from China will be a killer.

Not joking, it's the number one plane for people trying to learn on their own, from there you can branch out to more complicated planes.

That or buy something you'd have no hope of controlling, be out $300+ and get frustrated and quit.

The A380 at hobbyking is also at their USA warehouse, making it very affordable.

I think he's telling you don't buy one. Perhaps you should buy a nice high-wing trainer.

In general, jumbo-jet RC airplanes will disappoint you. Their only value is that they are big and look cool in the air, but only if you fly them with smooth, scale-like moves. If you try to yank and bank them they just look fake.

Never an airliner. No way. I'll suspect that CPC's link is to the HobbyZone Champ, and I'll back up that advice 100%. You'll thank us
